    Lightbulb help me with a sticker

    hello everybody,
    here is an image i would like to print and spread,
    http://www.ximages.net/images/44610095876955583342.png

    please help me with the text as english is not my native language.

    "Hi,
    I am Piggy, one of the most intelligent
    animal on the planet and just as other
    creatures I donít want to be hurted.
    Please go vegan or vegetarian, or at
    least make a step into direction of
    consuming less animal products and
    more plant-based foods. Thank You."

    Hi Kilgore, as far as I can see you just need to change " as other creatures' to just like other creatures' 'hurted' to 'hurt'. 'A step into the direction of consuming' I would change to something like 'a step towards consuming'

    Just as said above, also I would replace the word 'Less' with 'fewer'.
    The greatest mistake is to do nothing because you can only do a little.

    "...one of the most intelligent animals on the planet..."

    I would drop "or vegetarian". Because:
    a) we want people to go vegan
    b) and "a step towards consuming less animal products" is somewhat what vegetarian is.

    Equating vegan and vegetarian also sends the message that vegetarian is good enough or at least in the same league as vegan which it obviously is not.

    You are using an image of Porky Pig, someone is most likely holding a copyright on this image so you shouldn't be using it without permission.

    Thanks everyone for involving,
    thanks to you the message is polished but now i don't
    know what to do with the image, it is that unforgivable to use it so for non commercial purpose?

    to CoolCat
    I feel just like You but I had to admit that there's less people going directly to veganism (at least here were i am from)
    most people i know have been very gradual in their transition to a vegan, even I myself
    started from pescetarianism, than went to vegetarianism and then i cut the crap (as one image states).
    All this so called transition levels involve animal exploitation, that is sad, but there's less and less and for me its
    like choosing between bad and worse. I myself have only recently come to the believe to consider the intermediate colors..

    I will meditate more on this, thanks

    Progress is indeed gradual, but that doesn't mean we should deliver the message gradual as well. Because then we get gradual steps to our gradual messages and it all takes longer and we run the risk of getting "well haven't I done enough yet" before we deliver the final message.

    Hi Kilgore,

    I'm probably a bit late with this reply but.. it looks like a 'Disney' owned illustration so if you really wanted to be on the safe side just look up 'royalty free' images e.g http://sweetclipart.com/cute-happy-pink-pig-1820 tonnes of images are available for non commercial use. : ) If you want any changes in colour etc, let me know and I can shop it for ya.

    Another suggestion on text maybe?: 'Hi, I'm Piggy, one of the most intelligent animals on the planet. Like all creatures I don't want to be hurt. Please go vegan, better for me, better for you and better for the planet! Thanks!'

    Good on ya!
